Bear's portrait

So for hubby's birthday, I asked a local portrait artist to do a portrait of Bear....

Here's the original photo:



and here's the portrait (I cried when she showed me it when I went to pick it up)...

OMG,that is beautiful,a perfect likeness.
I have seen other portraits of pets and often time they miss the softness and expression of the animal,but this is wonderful

Her work is stunning, and we're going to get her to do a portrait of Molly next.

Oops, sorry, hit post too soon.

All I did was e mail her a picture of Bear, and she worked from that. She will come to your home and take pictures. It's absolutely uncanny how she caught his expression...I think it was at the cottage and he spied the dreaded squirrel.

He loves it loves it loves it! She did the framing of the portrait as well, and the picture has a special place in our home.....

Can't wait to get her to do Molly's next.
